In a rage, Alan said to his wife, What shall I do with those millions of frogs which disturb me? The neighboring pool makes me lose serenity and peace for it is full of millions of frogs which find no time to croak so foolishly but at night. I cant sleep.

Who said theyre millions?

These voices should be of millions of frogs.

Dont exaggerate. Lets go and see how to get rid of them.

How?

By selling them to the neighboring restaurant. It serves delicious dishes made of the limbs of frogs.

Alan went to the owner of the restaurant and told him that he was going to sell to him millions of the limbs of frogs. In the evening, he went with his wife taking lamps with them to find only two frogs.

all these voices are of two frogs only! He said to his wife.

Didnt I tell you we should examine the matter calmly?

Dont fear those who slander you and dont mind those who praise you for, the voice of two frogs only seems to be of millions of frogs.

→ English translation of the story here at St-Takla.org: ملايين الضفادع!

St-Takla.org Divider

Help me o LORD neither to exaggerate, fear dispraise nor seek praise.

Let me hear Your Voice for it is better than any other voice.
